Sweden 5 Kronor, KM 853, turned off fields at edge.
« on: April 07, 2019, 09:14:28 PM »
This one came from a box containing 10-20 similar ones - all showing turned off fields at edge.



5 Kronor ( 28,5 mm / 9,40 g), copper-nickel clad nickel (slightly magnetic), 9,50 g. theor. mint weight, mintage 10.542.598 , axis medal alignment ↑↑ (0), plain edge, inner fields at both sides ca. 2 mm turned off near rim.

Can this substitute a higher value coin now?

This issue has been demonetised last year. Turned off to assure underweight in machines and demonetising?

 ???

regards

Quite odd. Since it is on both sides, it doesn't look accidental, but making such an "error" on purpose would create demand from collectors. In general, that's what mints want only for commemorative coins.

An unidentified coin is a piece of metal. An identified coin is a piece of history.

Maybe the demonetised scrap metal can substitute a similar sized issue checked for 9,4 g in slot machines now?

Found one among my duplicates. I'd written it off as damage. The "decoration" is the other way around, showing that it was done after minting.

Is the weight reduction of your coin within a similar range?

Yes. 9.6 grams.
